Kay Julie Hutchings is a British artist and illustrator living in southern Sweden. 

Inspired by her native and adopted countries and cultures, Kay creates striking images that celebrate English country gardens, Scandinavian folk art and design, and the beauty of the natural world.

She works predominantly with watercolours, gouache and acrylic paints, creating artwork that combines the representational with the imaginary.

Kay first developed her distinctive style while studying for a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art at the University for the Creative Arts (UK). She has also studied art and design at Ravensbourne University London.
